Top of pops for 2022 baby names


Charlotte looks set to be the most popular girls’ name in NSW in 2022 while Oliver is the number one boys’ name for the eighth year running.

Attorney General Mark Speakman and Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello revealed the current top 10 NSW baby names for 2022, as recorded by the NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

“Welcoming a baby into the family is a joyous time for parents and selecting a name is one of the most important decisions they’ll make. It’s always interesting to see which names are the most popular each year,” Mr Speakman said.

“After finishing third in 2021, Charlotte is well placed to finish top of the charts joining Oliver who has been the number one baby boys’ name in NSW since 2014,” Mr Speakman said.

“Amelia, Isla and Mia have also made the top 10 for several years running, along with Jack, Noah, and William.

“We welcome the state’s newest residents and congratulate all NSW families who brought a little bundle of joy into their home in 2022.”

Mr Dominello said that parents have the option of registering the birth of a child online or by post using a paper form.

“Registering your child’s birth establishes their legal identity in the community and is important in accessing government services such as Medicare. Parents have up to 60 days from the date of birth in which to submit a registration form,” Mr Dominello said.

“While not compulsory, the overwhelming majority of parents also order a paper birth certificate for their child at the time of birth. When the first of its kind NSW Digital Birth Certificate is launched later this year, families will also benefit from having secure access to their child’s identity documents anywhere, at any time.

“Congratulations to NSW families now enjoying parenthood, either welcoming their first child or expanding their family in 2023.”
